Pencil drawings

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010 | Author:

Pencil art is an artistic form of visual art. There are so many applications of pencil art and this can also form the base of a charcoal painting. From sketches, landscapes and portraits pencil drawings have many variations. The approach towards pencil drawings may be many but the final art form is simply majestic. A novice version of pencil art can be simple sketching or drawing of a caricature. Look-and-draw pencil sketches are very interesting for children.

 

Plain graphite pencils come with various standards and specifics for the pencil art forms. The interesting range in color pencil art is again splendid. Bird drawings especially the drawings of multi colored feathered birds like a macaw are interesting when done with strokes of a colored pencil. Water soluble colored pencils are again a novel way to capture the magic of sketching using a pencil. The simple dip-in-water idea is also an easy solution to use the kit in a portable form.

 

Pencil drawings referring to portrait can be seen in real life paintings or sketches of face of the elderly, baby or a village belle. The variations in each pencil sketch are unique and list several techniques to capture the expression of eyes, eyebrows, laugh lines, crow’s feet and a toothless smile. More sketching accentuation is done with hair or forehead lines, the twinkle in the eye, a void expression or other important features of the face like jaw muscle or the ear or nose.

 

Pencil drawings of a dinosaur, bird, Santa or a park scene are very interesting for a child. Summer classes for pencil sketches teach the child to actually hold the pencil accurately and do the deft strokes under the able guidance of a senior artist. There are books available too that guide you on a step wise procedure to master the techniques of pencil art. Shadings are also a major chapter to be learnt in pencil drawings.

 

The spectacular representation of a scenery or landscape in black is another skill of an artist. There are double vision portrait styles and other arts related to weather and people as a crowd. Black and white pencil art is amazing and the surreal effect of mystic or spiritual painting with color pencil is quite an experience. Still life color pencil sketches also cultivate more platforms for artists who believe in expressing their feelings. There are more ideas like depiction of dreams in pencil art which make it a mystic understanding.
